You'll be fine with the wire mod-- I've S-OFFed three different sensations with no issues (even arced a little one time due to static electricity, didn't hurt anything).
Try to find the instructions with the video gif-- it helps get the right timing (has to be DEAD on to work).
Also make sure you:
1) Touch something metal first to discharge any static you have (will throw off the procedure otherwise)
2) Don't be stupid like me and use an unshielded wire (like a paper clip)-- it defeats the grounding action and will burn up a lot of time. Use a shielded wire or use a paper clip and wear a glove-- took me over 2 hours my first time until I finally realized that. I don't think the instructions mention it, and although it should be obvious, it just didn't occur to me right away (and I'm an engineering student, lol)
